Lockbox Services Allow For Quicker Access To Cash

Our lockbox service can help your business accelerate your cash flow by providing an end-to-end receivables solution to convert your collections into working capital (or working cash). Our state of the art lockbox automates the collection, processing and deposit of checks to ensure same day credit while saving time, reducing error and minimizing risk. By centralizing your payment collection you can reduce mail float, speed collections and improve your days sales outstanding while reducing your check processing costs. 

How Our Lockbox Services Work

No matter how many payments you receive, we accept payments daily through a centralized post-office box and deposit those funds quickly and securely into your business bank account. We process your incoming payments at designated times using our automated collection processes to accelerate the posting and availability of your incoming payments. Payments and remittance information are securely imaged and archived to aid your posting process and deposits are made the same business day they are received in a fast, accurate manner. By using a standard remittance address we can also help reduce errors, expedite the collection process and provide faster access to your cash.
